When it comes to what to make for their mum this Mother’s Day, siblings Bill and Izzy, from our story, are in total agreement: it has to be a cake. Maybe their baking skills don’t entirely match their enthusiasm, but they know she’ll love their showstopper – even if they had to cover up the wonky bits with buttercream. See method

When baking, use eggs at room temperature – they will disperse more evenly throughout the batter.
As well as being an ideal topping for toast, strawberry jam is great stirred into yogurt or – warmed with a little water in a pan – served with vanilla ice cream.
Freezing and defrosting guidelines
Freeze sponge only: bake according to the recipe but stop before adding decoration or icing. Allow to cool completely. Wrap well in clingfilm and tin foil (to prevent freezer burn) and freeze for up to 1 month.
Loosen the tin foil and clingfilm but leave to defrost in packaging at room temperature for several hours before serving. If you wish to add icing or decoration, add them after the baked goods have fully defrosted and are at room temperature.
